Using PayPal With A Bank Account

If you don't have a credit card account, you can still enjoy the convenience and security of using PayPal to make purchases. You can link your bank account to a PayPal account. That way, you can transfer funds* from your bank account to your PayPal account and use PayPal to make payment.

To link your bank account to a PayPal account, simply go to and create a PayPal account, then follow these instructions.

In your PayPal account main page, go to "Profile" and select "Add/Edit Bank Account".

Enter your bank details in the form, making very sure that both the "Bank name" and "MEPS bank routing code" are correct. Click on "Details" to find the code for your bank.

Make sure all the information you entered is correct, then hit "Continue". You should receive an email from PayPal showing you how to complete the process from there.

For more information, take a look at PayPal's instruction sheet for adding bank accounts and also for transferring fundsĀ from your bank account to your PayPal account.

At checkout, choose PayPal as your payment option and you're done!

Happy shopping!

* Transferring funds may take 2-3 days.
